I offer three solutions:

1) go to digikey and look up tactile switches. Select SPST-NC and view the 20 different ones they have.

2) Hire somebody to keep their finger on the button when you're not there to un-press it.

3) show us the circuit and maybe we can come up with some simple alternative that uses a readily available NO tactile switch.

I'm not recommending this site, but it does list a number of such switches:

I'd try other online retailers. Just because digikey don't have the exact part doesn't make it the last place to search. In short, expand on option 1 :)

But, wait, what are you paying to hold that button down?
